Unfortunately we didn't read any reviews before eating here. 7 euros 50 for French fries which arrived 10 minutes after the meal was finished. The waiters are the most miserable I have ever come across. The soup was tasteless. 6 euros for a few olives...More

We made sure to say no thanks to the bread and additives for 3€ per person, three times from different waiters, after ten days in Portugal that's a cheeky price for it! We then got our "beef steak" and tagliatelle with (frozen or lacking anything...More

Our big mistake visiting Cais da Ribeira was not to check out the Tripadvisor reviews first., lesson learned! Two of our party had the Chataubriand which was undercooked (not rare!) and smothered in a mayonnaise sauce, the other mains were OK, we didn't stay for...More
